Samba

Meetings in the Samba

The Samba space is so versatile – there’s both traditional café seating at one end of the space and a large living room at the other filled with comfortable vintage furniture. In between you have a kitchen-like area for meals and extra breakout space. Use the living room for a total group gathering and then easily switch to small group breakouts. With three distinct areas that flow freely into each other, inspiring stimulation is all in a day’s work, guaranteed.

Special Events

The rambling layout of The Samba is a luxury for any Special Event. Guests can roam from the comfy seating in our front room to the dining areas at the other end of this colorful flat. The plethora of possibilities makes for an engaging, unexpected celebration!

Jitterbug

Meetings in the Jitterbug

With citrus-colored walls and plenty of natural light, The Jitterbug Room is a cheerful meeting space that sparks positivity and imaginative thought. This room is a unique L-shape designed to include multiple comfy breakout areas. There is an abundance of wall space for flipchart paper to be posted around the room and a nail strip on the brick wall holds custom-designed plasticore sheets and flipcharts to create additional workspace. 

The Jitterbug Room has one central presentation area and three breakout areas. 

Special Events

The Jitterbug Room gets you moving the second you cross its threshold. The lively green and orange color scheme screams happy feet and sets your toes to tapping. Hopefully there’s a band gearing up to start their set. In the meantime, sidle up to the vintage Tiki Bar and enjoy a cocktail and conversation with a long lost relative. Many a big birthday party has been celebrated in this room from Sweet Sixteen to the big 5-0, to a 90th!

Mambo

Meetings in the Mambo

The Mambo Room is filled with plenty of positive vibes and will immediately lift your spirits. The room is decked out with beautiful cherry wood floors, plenty of sunlight and happy blue and green tones. Enjoy a cup of coffee or have a small group breakout session in the sunny couch grouping nestled by the windows. There’s ample wall space to swap out art for flipchart pads or our customized plasticore sheets, which create even more vertical work space to suit your needs. 

The Mambo has one central presentation area and two breakout areas. 

Special Events

Enter the Mambo Room through the vintage double French doors and you’ll find yourself in an exotic land of Indian, Thai and Indonesian puppets, hand painted flowers and lush plants. The Mambo Room lends itself to beautiful and memorable wedding ceremonies, anniversary parties, book launches and engagement parties.

MAMBO for Focus Groups

The room also has a special secret element – the large green boards with painted ethnic patterns hide two-way mirrors. If rented along with the Foxtrot Room for focus groups, the Mambo turns into the largest, most flexible respondent room in the city. Clients watch from the Foxtrot Room. Now we’re talking creative focus groups! For more info on our focus group capabilities, please check out the Focus Groups page.

Foxtrot

Meetings in the Foxtrot

The Foxtrot Room is cute and cozy and perfect for the most intimate meetings. Though Foxtrot is our smallest room, it’s still equipped with all of our meeting amenities including a large screen HDTV for presentations and an entire wall of dry-erase boards. It’s the perfect space for a small team who just need a quiet getaway from their own offices! 

FOXTROT for Focus Groups

Peek behind the dry erase boards to find our two-way mirrors. When rented along with the Mambo Room for focus groups, the dry erase boards come off and the Foxtrot Room transforms into the coolest client viewing room in town. For more info on our focus group capabilities, please see the Focus Groups page.
